So here we are…the last day of April already. I feel like I say this same cliche stuff every. single. month., but I really do swear that April absolutely FLEW by. I mean, wasn’t it just March?!
Luckily, I have no problems with time flying these days since I kinda have some fun and exciting things on the horizon if ya know what I mean. And I’m pretty sure that May is going to be a pretty awesome month, too. While our schedule isn’t too jam packed (yet), Jay and I are planning on taking a little Babymoon sometime in the month of May. Now, if we could just figure out WHERE to go…
See, here’s the thing. You know that adventure map that we have?
Well, we’re trying really hard to pick a state to travel to that we haven’t already been to (together). Since we want to keep things within driving distance, that basically narrows us to the northeast, so here’s what we have left to hit up nearby:
- New Hampshire
- Rhode Island
I actually put a call out on Facebook a couple of weeks ago asking your recommendations, and quite a few of you had great things to say about NH, RI, and the Cape.
So I think right now we’re trying to decide between somewhere in New Hampshire or Rhode Island, but we’re feeling a little lost on where to start looking. I’d love to go somewhere with a cute downtown area, with lots of fun shops and good restaurants. Preferably somewhere that has a nice body of water nearby? So if anyone at ALL has any recommendations on where to go and/or where to stay, please send ’em my way. I’m all ears! :)
SPEAKING of Babymoon stuff and Baby Tooth…the Baby Tooth page was updated this morning!
Also good news, is that yesterday’s doctor’s appointment went great. Doc said my measurements and weight gain were right on target (she even used “perfect” to describe them), baby’s heart rate was beating away in the steady 140’s, and the glucose test drink was pretty damn delicious. Not gonna lie. For those of you who said the orange tasted just like the orange Hi-C drink from McDonald’s? You were soooo right. YUM.
As for the results, they said I can call back in about a week to find out, because they wouldn’t contact me if everything was okay. BUT, me being me, I’m going to be calling. ;) Now, for the next couple of visits, I’ll be heading back every two weeks instead of four…we’re getting down to the wire!
Oh. Aaaaand because this blog is supposed to be somewhat about food too, I have a couple of things to share with ya today…including this delicious salad I had for lunch yesterday.
I was making an effort to go easy on any extra sugar yesterday before the appointment, so I figured a salad would fit the bill. Lots of veggies, feta cheese, and a couple slices of turkey. Tasted delicious…despite the fact that all I wanted was sugar because I told myself I couldn’t/shouldn’t have it.
See…this is why I don’t cut out food groups…no bueno for me.
Dinner last night was courtesy of my in-laws, since we headed over to their house last night. I had to laugh after seeing this picture because it looks like I have about three whole bites of food on my plate.
But honestly, those plates were huge and the meal was plenty to fill me up. Nevermind the fact that we also had pretty generous bowls of ice cream for dessert (Edy’s Slow Churned Caramel Delight Light ice cream…SO good)…I certainly did not leave hungry. ;)
Alright, time to head to work my friends. Hope everyone has an awesome last-day-of-April!
